Set Personal Default View in Microsoft CRM 2011 Web Client

If you are using the Microsoft CRM 2011 Web Client – one of the more useful setting is to set your personal default view.  Often times, the system default view may not be your personal preference.  Also, you may have created a personal view via Advanced Find that you would like to be the default instead.

Here is how to set your personal default view in Microsoft CRM 2011 Web Client:

  • Select your desired personal default view a CRM Entity View.  For example Leads “Leads Opened This Week”



  • Click on the View tab and then click on the “Set As Default View



That’s it – this will save you time on each time you access this entity view.

    Frank, can you then also share your default view setting or publish it for public view ?

  2. Currently there no “one button” conversion between a personal view and public view. Just have to re-create that personal view under a system view.

  3. LegalTrack says:

    Thanks Frank. But can we not make one personal view and share it with a team or something ?
